Dick Carlson www.DickCarlson.com The Power of Babble Columbia Information Technology Council Developing kick-ass learning is not for the faint of heart. Giving a Generation X learner a talking head with a “next” button is a recipe for destruction. They’ll tune out and start reading mail (or IM-ing their friends, or playing Doom, or listening to tunes on their i-Pod). You’ve got to move up to the next level of interactive customer-driven learning using techniques like blogs, podcasting, networked communities, wikis, viral videos and other cutting edge tools where the inmates build the asylum.
Podcasts, Wikis, Blogs – Oh My! A podcast is a collection of digital media files which is distributed over the Internet, often using syndication feeds, for playback on portable media players and personal computers. A wiki is software that allows users to easily create, edit, and link pages together. Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites and to power community websites. A blog (short for “web log”) is a website where entries are commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
